Does a recent cancer diagnosis have you concerned about what types of cancer Roundup causes and how exposure to glyphosate has affected your health or the health of a loved one? If so, consider hiring your lawyer to find out how they can help you explore the financial compensation you may be entitled to.
Living with a Cancer Diagnosis
A diagnosis of cancer can change your immediate and distant future. According to MedlinePlus, living with cancer means more than long-term medical care. Cancer can change your life in many ways, including altering your personal, professional, and social life.
Cancer can prevent you from engaging in activities you once enjoyed and may prevent you from working to support yourself and your family, which can lead to financial strain. The combined stress and medical treatments you endure can also change your physical ability and appearance.
With support from your loved ones, you can learn coping skills and techniques that help you deal with the diagnosis, treatment plan, and lifestyle changes you may experience. With support from your lawyer, you might also be able to seek compensation for the financial aftermath of a cancer diagnosis caused by exposure to Roundup products and their active ingredient.
Seeking Financial Compensation from Roundup’s Manufacturer
The financial impact of a cancer diagnosis that can be attributed to long-term exposure to Roundup can be far-reaching. You might lose business or employment income when your health or treatment plan does not allow you to continue working.
You may also incur an increasing amount of medical bills and related expenses required to treat your cancer. By proving Roundup caused your cancer, you may be able to hold its manufacturer financially liable for your medical care, transportation to and from required treatments and health care appointments, and over-the-counter and prescription medications.
In addition to your medical care, you may also be able to recoup the cost of the income you have lost and are expected to lose in the future because of your diagnosis. The stress, anxiety, pain and suffering, mental distress, and emotional trauma that stem from your diagnosis also have financial value and can be included in your compensation claim. Review your diagnosis and related expenses with your lawyer to arrive at a monetary value for your compensation claim.
Your Roundup Lawsuit Has a Time Limit
Every civil lawsuit has a predetermined time limit. The statute of limitations defines the amount of time the state gives you to file a lawsuit for financial compensation against Roundup’s manufacturer.
Do not hesitate to contact a law firm to make sure the time you have to file your lawsuit does not expire. If that happens, you may not be able to file your lawsuit at all, and you may not receive the financial recovery you are due.
